      Show was a waist of time and money. Hopefully next year they can get a lot more vendors and cars.

      Here are some pictures I took.
      First, pictures from the hotel i stayed the night at with some of the cars for the show.




      Now onto the show, show and shine and the venue.




      By the way that golf r and jetta are not stock.













      That is a Noble M400





























      This is after the cars left, this place is huge.

      Lastly, us, some other volunteers, vendors, sponsors, and various other people from the show at dinner afterwards.

      Wow. Great show. Very nice cars. Reminds me of the 2001 New Dimensions show at Moffett Field.

      Hat off to the organizers.

      Food trucks would be cool but I can't see that happening. I'm sure it has something to do with the venue & their vendors. Kinda like @ Bug-o-Rama & the track's food shack.

      Myself (red corrado on color matched RS's) and 9 other friends (silver mk3 gti on mercedes wheels and black bmw 525i wagon) drove down from Tacoma for this and had an amazing time. All you folks are super chill and very nice to be around. This show lands in my top 3 VW events I've ever been to (11 years worth) and I'm pretty sure we are going to make this an annual trip for us. I just wan to thank all the organizers and sponsors for making this happen. See you all again next year!

      Agreed that the pricing on that was high - but there is probably an agreement between all shows and the venue that the house grill be the sole food provider.

      I thought the food was expensive too, but it's really not an end all be all.

      I thought Mike and the guys put on a great show, with probably one of the best venues I have EVER been to a show at.

      Hands down.

      I am sure next time, things will be more ironed out - but I am really excited for it.

      I really hope the judging format is temporary because it was a first year show. Concourse style really favors newer cars!! Otherwise awesome show awesome venue very well organized thanks for brining waterwerks to Ca!!! We will see you next year!

      Can't necessarily say that. I know of a few older cars (a certain daily-driven Corrado comes to mind) that placed very well. Said Corrado was one point (!) away from taking home gold. Admittedly, the format was certainly a surprise to many who've never been to a WaterWerks event up north (myself included), but it's not gonna keep me away from future events; just gonna make me work harder & choose differently which car comes out to play.

      Ya it was definatly a surprise, would have been nice to know in advance somehow... I was at waterwerks in 2010 in tacoma and it was standard class format so I don't know if this is new or just because it's the first show?? Still confused on the number of each award given out??

      The way I understood it to be was that you were judged purely against yourself. You were scored on a number of criteria (interior, paint & body, engine, etc.) and had points to gain or lose in each group. There were no actual classes in the traditional sense though. Depending on how many points total you ended up with, you would end up with either a bronze, silver or gold award. The more super-clean cars there were, the more silver & gold awards that would be handed out.
